Atlas Software Launches New Printshop Mail
Compared to the previous PrintShop Mail 98 version, the new PrintShop Mail windows version, PrintShop Mail 4.0 Windows Edition (WE), will run variable data print jobs faster, has support for non-PDF image files and has a greatly improved graphical user interface. It includes many new features and improvements in design, text objects, images, databases, variables and printing technologies. This version now also features support for unicode and dual byte characters. The object oriented coding ensures an even faster and more efficient PostScript output, which translates into variable data printing jobs running faster, depending on RIP capability. Also, this new version includes an "AutoPrint" feature, which allows users to automate production of variable data print jobs.
The PrintShop Mail Macintosh 4.3 version is an update from the existing Macintosh 4.2 version. Most notably, this new Macintosh version, has support for PDF image files, features the new PPML technology and includes a "Hot Folder" function which enables users to automate print production of variable data print jobs.
The list pricing of the single user PrintShop Mail licenses remain unchanged. Atlas will also introduce various multi-user licenses. Registered users of earlier windows versions of PrintShop Mail can upgrade to PrintShop Mail 4.0WE for the reduced price of $595. All users who purchased PrintShop Mail 98 after October 1, 2001 will be eligible for a free upgrade. Both new PrintShop Mail versions are now shipping.
